Interested in the Art of Puppetry?

Post date: Mar 19, 2013 5:03:18 PM

This is a basic puppetry workshop for those who are interested in exploring the art of breathing life in to an inanimate object – otherwise known as puppeteering. Mostly working with Muppet-style puppets (Hand and Rod) we will explore techniques such as breath, focus, movement and lip sync. Once everyone has a handle on some of the basics, we will also have fun with simple improvisation and play. Maybe we’ll even take a look at what is involved in performing puppets for the camera. (YouTube anyone?)

Puppeteers with some experience are encouraged to join us – there’s always something to be learned. Everyone is invited to bring their own puppets if they have any. The BRWP spokesfrog for 2013, Bonnie Chere, will be there for you to animate if you are interested.
